Depending on who you believe either Jay Z had Aaliyah first and them Dame came into the picture or vice versa. What we do know is that Jay never speaks on it and Dame constantly does. No one really knows the reason why beyond he is still hurt that he and Jay aren’t friends anymore. Here is what he had to say to Page Six out of the blue yesterday. “He tried very hard,” Dash told us of Jay’s pursuit of Aaliyah. “I did not mean to fall in love with Aaliyah, she was just that cool,” he said. “But you know, we were both going hard … everybody was trying to get to Aaliyah — it was not just Jay.” “I did not know Jay was trying to holler at her, but then it just happened like that. He was trying, I was trying. Everybody was trying — he was going hard.” It is a weird thing to keep talking about especially because she is deceased, but this is Dame we are talking about.
